To support the successful implementation of IMO 2020 by the international shipping sector, this publication brings together all the relevant instruments and guidance into one reference document, including IMO resolutions and circulars.

This publication details the revision to MARPOL Annex VI, known as ‘IMO 2020’. The revised regulations include a requirement that the sulphur content of fuel oil used by ships operating outside designated emission control areas shall not exceed 0.50% by mass. This revision came into force on 1 January 2020 and will significantly benefit human health and the environment.

A??s a specialized agency of the United Nations, IMO is the global standard-setting authority for the safety, security and environmental performance of international shipping. Its main role is to create a regulatory framework for the shipping industry that is fair and effective, universally adopted and universally implemented. ?

In other words, its role is to create a level playing-field so that ship operators cannot address their financial issues by simply cutting corners and compromising on safety, security and environmental performance. This approach also encourages innovation and efficiency.

Shipping is a truly international industry, and it can only operate effectively if the regulations and standards are themselves agreed, adopted and implemented on an international basis. And IMO is the forum at which this process takes place.
